If the water won’t drain out of your sink and you can’t fix the problem yourself, call the slow drain experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
You’re planning to head to Clearwater today to watch the testing for tomorrow’s power boat racing. But rather than the carefree day you had planned, you’re staring at a sink full of water that won’t drain.
This isn’t the first time the sink has stopped up. It seems to happen a lot. You’ve done everything you can think of to unclog it from pulling out the pop up stopper to using homemade and store-bought drain cleaners to using a plunger. Things seem to work temporarily, but the clog seems to come back.
It could be you have a problem much farther down in your system. Or, it could be something more simple – like a clogged sink overflow. The sink overflow is that hole near the top of the sink that’s designed to help keep water from slopping over onto your counter or floor.
“One purpose of the overflow opening is to divert water into the drain if it accidentally rises too high in the sink, of course,” thespruce.com says. “But another important purpose is to allow air into the drain when the sink is filled with water. The air that comes into the drain through the overflow helps water in the sink to drain faster.
“The sink overflow is another place where debris and build-up can collect over time. If a sink is draining slowly and cleaning the drain does not seem to solve the problem, it is a good idea to clean the overflow as well.”
If you’ve tried that and had no success, it’s time to find a drain cleaning expert like the trusted drain cleaning specialists at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
